An Age-Old Approach with Modern Application

Throughout human history, psychedelics have had tremendous ceremonial and medicinal importance. Recent clinical studies only support what our predecessors already understood about psilocybin mushrooms: they have the power to help people heal.

The brain is a complex organ and it is generally left unsaid that changing the way your mind compartmentalizes trauma and assorted intrusive thoughts can be easier said than done. Conventional therapies may not always produce the results you hoped for, and medications can create side effects worse than the problems they intend to solve. Lifestyle changes can also be met with resistance and often seem to only take you so far.

If you are just coping, we want to help you thrive.

Psilocybin-assisted therapy can provide an accelerated path to deep healing, new perspectives, connectedness, and feelings of well-being. 91% of our retreat guests consider their experience with us “positively life-changing.”

Our experience is that this approach to healing is likely the path you have been seeking.

MycoMeditations & Imperial College London Research

Since 2018, many of our guests have contributed to the Ceremony Study conducted by the Centre for Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London. The study set out to measure how long participants reported positive impact from their psilocybin experience and broke new ground by including non-clinical providers in their research.

While further scientific studies are needed, the preliminary results reported by MycoMeditations guests are promising.

As of March 2021, there were 181 participants from MycoMeditations that were studied for baseline data, followed by post ceremony data of 57 participants at two weeks, 79 at four weeks, and 32 at six months.

Connectedness

  • Studied using the Watts Connectedness Scale (WCS), which measured the degree of connection that each participant experienced to themselves, others, and the world.
  • MycoMeditations participants experienced increased feelings of connectedness by 35% four weeks after attending, and remained increased by 35% six months after attending.

Depressive Symptoms

  • Studied using the Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology Scale (QIDS), which was designed to assess the severity of depressive symptoms.
  • MycoMeditations participants experienced reductions in depressive symptoms by 51% four weeks after attending, and 34% six months after attending.

Psychological Well-Being

  • Studied using the Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale (WEMWBS), which was developed to enable the monitoring of mental well-being in the general population.
  • MycoMeditations participants experienced improvements in psychological well-being by 18% four weeks after attending, and 12% six months after attending.

Mystical Experience

  • Studied using the Mystical Experience Questionnaire (MEQ), which is made of subscales consisting of: unity, transcendence of time and space, sacredness, noetic quality, positive mood, and ineffability. According to the MEQ, a ‘complete’ mystical experience is counted when someone ranks above 60% on each of the subscales.
  • In 17% of sessions, MycoMeditations participants experienced a complete mystical experience.

Social Connectedness

  • Studied using the Social Connectedness Scale (SCS), which assesses the degree to which people feel connected to others in their social environment.
  • MycoMeditations participants experienced improvements of social connectedness by 23% four weeks after attending, and 17% six months after attending.

Discover FAQs

Before attending one of our retreats, all applicants must submit an application form and agree to a Health Screening and Full Disclosure with MycoMeditations to ensure their health and safety. We have created a psilocybon-assisted retreat model that aims to provide guests with the best possible outcomes. Our psilocybin mushrooms are also locally cultivated, and lab tested to ensure potency, consistency, and quality for our guests.

In addition, MycoMeditations have taken the required steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 during our retreats and around the local areas of Treasure Beach, Jamaica. For more information, be sure to check out our COVID-19 Protocols section on our FAQ page or contact us online.

Mycomeditations is one of the only psilocybin-assisted retreats that spreads three psilocybin sessions over a week with group therapy integrated in between. In our experience, we find that this slow integration is perfect for guests as we are able to monitor and facilitate the effectiveness of each dosage safely. We also work with guests to ensure that they are provided with doses appropriate for their needs. Lastly, we are not microdosing retreat—we provide large doses of psilocybin mushrooms for our guests to receive the full benefits of psilocybin therapy.

Following your stay, you will be entered into our continued integration process, which includes additional group therapy meetings hosted over Zoom with one of our therapists. This ensures that all of our guests are provided with a reliable and consistent emotional support network and an opportunity to continue exploring new perspectives following their experience with us.

As with any psychedelic drug, individual experiences will vary when psilocybin is administered. The higher the dose, the higher the chance of the experience feeling mystical. Should you have such an experience, these experiences tend to be filled with euphoria, transcending into a timeless, dream-like state, connecting to something greater, and more. Improved psychological outcomes are also related to the occurence of a mystical experience.
